If someone wants something more detailed and longer, I recommend watching and reading Welcome to the N.H.K.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welcome_to_the_N.H.K.

EDIT:

Remember another drawn pamphlet that is easier to pay attention to (IMO)

scroll to 'original pamphlet' for another pamphle

I love it GreenTurtle! :D . Quirky and cute, a funny and straightforward explaination of Asperger's.

Amazing, Greenturtle! Do have it published!

How can I get a link to it outside WP so I can post it in my blog? Could you please PM me with the author's name you'd like it to be credited for?

And I insist...you should have it published. Schools and parents could use it to teach children about AS kids too.

I think that was one of the best ways of explaining AS I've ever read. Good job Greenturtle.

Love it. You should publish it at http://lulu.com or go to http://www.jkp.com as specialist publishers. Keep on doodling!

Hi! I am overwhelmed and touched to get such a positive reaction to this. And a sticky too? :D It’s really beyond what I expected. Thank you!! !

You all are making my head spin, talking about publishing, and building bridges. None of that ever crossed my mind, it was just an attempt to say “this is who I am” in an informative but fun way. It might also surprise you to know I’ve barely picked up a pencil to draw in 20 years or so. Why'd I do it now? I was thinking about special interests, and what mine could possibly be, and even though it had been a long while, my cartoons are what came to mind. I guess when you learn such an important thing about yourself as AS, you start to see yourself and your interests in a whole new light.

I also want to say this: Anyone could, and should, do what I did. That is, to tell your story, your way. My talent is doodling, maybe yours is songwriting, or painting, or whatever. (If it’s washing machines, I don’t know what to tell you. :? ) But whatever you can do to educate others about AS with your own voice, you will help break down barriers and promote understanding. We can all be advocates.

Hugs to all!! !
GT

I think that your guide reveals a lot of talent, Greenturtle. The drawings are certainly appealing, but the text is very nicely judged, too- not a word out of place. I'm a high school teacher (and NT) and I found your work very engaging. I've saved a copy to possibly use with my students in the future. Thanks for sharing it with us. Jenny

It's perfect! It covers every aspect, and in a humourous tone as well.
It wouldn't be a waste of time if this was put to publishing. ;)

OK, I’ve set up a new blog, Dude, I'm An Aspie!, for those who want to link/share directly. Do me a favor, please; as much as possible, I don’t want my real name connected with my WP username (so as not to totally lose my anonymity here.) So basically, call me by my WP name here, and my real name there. Thanks!

I am also going to take a look at lulu for publishing. Thanks to MsBehaviour for the recommendation.

Great! AWA Israel blog is now following your blog. I'll send your series to some organizations and professionals here in Israel, and to AWA international, I'm sure they'll love it.

Curious, you should be able to link to WP without issue.
